These sort of careless generalisations simply don't help, or match the information that's out there. Within most subjects there's age-dependant and ageless content. Even in the most modern ones like 'tech'.
I don't know why you're angry at me, I'm just the messenger. I'm trying to tell you what Google's doing. They are favoring new content and large sites over old content and small sites. They have been doing this for quite some time. I thought everyone knew this already.
As for the OP's problem, large shakeups usually have you drop in the serps. Google's algorithm favors consistency.
